Keeping your donors happy

Keep your donors feeling informed, connected and enthusiastic about what your arts organisation does. Donors want to know that you are going to put their donation to good use.

Some suggestions to help maintain a good relationship with them:

  • Develop a plan of up-coming projects and goals for your organisation. Let potential donors know how their contribution will help to make this plan happen.
  • Invite your donors to openings and other functions. Make them feel like they are a part of your organisation.
  • Be clear about what potential donors can expect back from you – be sure you can do what you promise.  

Talk to other organisations about how they keep their donors happy.
